Hibbert Wins Gold For A Record 6th Time At X Games

The 2013 X Games took place this last weekend, and Tucker Hibbert once again came away the winner after taking the lead after the first lap.  He set himself up nicely and was able to hold of the competition, making history as the first rider to win 6 golds at x games.

Here’s what Tucker had to say:

“The first corner of the main event got intense. I drove in pretty hard, slid sideways and
got hooked with Ross (Martin). I thought for a second I was going to get spun around
backwards but then realized it was okay. I knew I was second or third out of the first
turn so I played it safe in the second corner because I knew there were a lot of guys
around and behind me. Once I got around Ross, I kept pushing as hard as a could for a
few laps to open a gap. Fortunately, I opened that gap pretty quick then just focused on
going fast and not making any mistakes. By the last lap, I figured I was in a safe position
so I started fist pumping a little early.
The track was awesome. It was super technical and got really rough, which is not
normal for X Games. That mixed with the long lap times made it really fun. We don’t
always get those big jumps and rhythm sections at a national event so it makes X
different and special.
At first, I was just excited about the win and was thinking about how hard we (the
team) worked to get ready. I was relieved a little bit. I didn’t think about the six-peat
until people started asking and talking about it. It’s a cool feeling getting the six-peat.
Maybe it hasn’t sunk in yet bit I know it’s an honor to hold this record and it’s really
cool to see Shaun White (Snowboard Superpipe) follow with his six-peat.
